As of now open pa ako sa lahat ng opportunities pero hindi naman ako totally magsa-stop sa volleyball open lang ako sa iba pang possibilities na pwedeng mangyari outside sports -- Mika Reyes
Volleyball star Mika Reyes is looking to take a rest from the sport for a while.
“Hindi naman sa nagsasawa ako pero after five long years ko sa collegiate volleyball siyempre parang pahinga muna as of now,” said the former De La Salle University middle, who in her half a decade of service as a Lady Spiker won three UAAP titles including last Season 78’s crown against Alyssa Valdez-led archrival Ateneo de Manila University in three games.
After her swan song for the green and white, Reyes helped F2 Logistics capture the 2016 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino title with most of DLSU’s championship core, played in the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship before leading the Cargo Movers to a third place finish in the PSL Grand Prix.
“I have months pa naman para makapagpahinga gagawin ko ang puwede kong gawin doon,” said the 5-foot-11 mestiza looker.
A talent under Virtual Playground, the 22-year old stunner for the meantime is looking to explore opportunities outside of the volleyball court.
“Marami silang plans for me kasi options pa lang ngayon wala pang final pero syempre gusto ko rin naman mag-work para syempre ako ang bread winner sa amin, hindi naman sa hindi enough ang nakukuha ko, pero makakuha pa ako ng pwede pang (extra income),” she said.
“As of now open pa ako sa lahat ng opportunities pero hindi naman ako totally magsa-stop sa volleyball open lang ako sa iba pang possibilities na pwedeng mangyari outside sports,” added Reyes, who currently manages a family owned resort in their hometown in Pulilan, Bulacan.
Asked if she’s open to enter showbiz, Reyes is more inclined into hosting than acting though she can make a good love team to Kapamilya actor Jerome Ponce, whom she currently dates.
“More on sa hosting siguro ako. 'Yun ang gusto ko talaga,” said Reyes.
Other volleybelles that proved successful in hosting are Gretchen Ho, Michele Gumabao, Mela Tunay and Valdez.
